GREAT shakes! No TV! We also enjoyed a great cobb salad, 1/2 sandwich & cup of soup. Lovely, small stop.

Was surprised that the chocolate malt wasn't chocolaty. Really expect more of a restaraunt whose speciality is malts. The cheesburger was excellent. Fish and chips mostly breading.

Stop by and savor one of the many, many flavors of real malts. Add a meal and your day will be complete. Not to be missed for casual dining.

We were hungry so we each ordered burgers and a malt and float. Wow - it was all good but way too much to eat.... The atmosphere is not fancy, just warm and inviting.

We were introduced to this place on our second visit to Twin Cities, now we brought the younger one. He defeated a small malt by himself, so betting on sharing and trying the many different flavors didn't work.

Always have had great food at malt shop. Past year or so, it oddly went downhill. Weird. Malts still spot on but also see lack of diners? Hope this changes as long time malt shop fans!

Ended up at the Malt Shop after our first pick was super busy. It was a comfortable, friendly spot with many different menu choices and a friendly staff. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but wasn't disappointed either.

Yes. We only use real ice cream and never add milk. We just add your favorite flavorings and mix it up when you order. Hope to see you soon. Dick Henke Owner
